Last week was OK for riding. The weather, aside from some wind, didn't affect any rides. I haven't felt the desire to ride but get out there and feel better for it.

I couldn't get the bracket on tight enough so I put the light on my bag. Not ideal.

Monday
62° wind 5+ NNE
I pumped up the tires but it didn't help. It was too windy to get a good pace. My heart wasn't in it. 
10 miles 13.1 mph

Clear skies are boring.

57° wind 5 NE
Sunny. In my eyes. 
Tired. No legs. I was surprised I rode as fast as I did. It helped that there was little wind. Couldn't keep my mind focused either. 
10 miles 13.6 mph

I put a bracket on Andy's bike then spent too much time getting mine right. It was the bracket and I used another.

Friday
69° wind 5-8 mph
Later since I don't have to work today. The sun was higher in the sky and out of my eyes for the most part. 
Felt good until I turned around on WRB. The wind hit me hard and I lost my 14mph speed.

Saturday. 
67° wind 4 NW
I rode out to BBD and did the long loop. Paul Ink passed me on his loud motorcycle on Aronwood. He honked and waved. 
A lot of people walking and jogging on the path. They can walk around the blockages. 
I felt some wind on MPB but it didn't slow me down until Beardsley. I was at 14.5. 
11 miles 14.3 mph

Sunday
83° no wind
I asked Andy if I should ride in Deer Run or Morningside. "Ride in Deer Run, please." 
Rode Ryan's bike around Deer Run.
Pleasant. 
1.3 miles. 7.67 mph
